re: 4 BYOD Security Strategies For Small Business
BYOD has a number of benefits for the company and the end-user, but it has issues as well. Companies need to be conscious of safeguarding internal resources from compromised BYOD devices, and protecting proprietary data on those devices as well. I like the information in this article about how to embrace mobility and BYOD without compromising on security. http://www.pcworld.com/article...

re: 4 BYOD Security Strategies For Small Business
Arthur, the concept of a dual persona is tough for some people to grasp. Even when explained to them the importance of separating work and personal, it is like explaining percentages or fractions to them.

How many people do you know use their work email for everything? All those dumb jokes, forwarding photos, and dating messages...
Or the small businesses that even have a web address for their business, but still use their AOL account for email?

You are correct though, that companies should 'force' the dual personas, perhaps by telling everyone that everything used the business address is property of the business, and subject to review. Then a month later, actually review some personal emails with them. :) Watch how quickly the personal stuff leaves the work email.

re: 4 BYOD Security Strategies For Small Business
I am surprised that this post did not mention the use of "dual persona" mobile clients that will keep personal and business contacts completely separated on smartphone/tablet devices. The "dual persona" approach is what will enable practical BYOD policies to be established without all the "training" that is suggested.
